Is there an ultimate meaning to human existence? Julian Baggini argues in What's It All About that meaning can be found in a variety of ways. He succinctly breaks down six answers people commonly suggest when considering what life is all about--helping others, serving humanity, being happy, becoming successful, enjoying each day as if it were your last, and "freeing your mind." By reducing the mysterious question of "meaning" to a series of more specific questions about what gives life purpose and value, he shows that the quest for meaning can be personal, empowering, and uplifting--and within everyone's reach
